Summary: The Second Edition of THE AMERICAN DICTIONARY OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE is a reference every student of the criminal justice system should own. Like any good dictionary, this resource will assist students in a variety of courses - as well as in writing papers and understanding terminology in journal articles. The Dictionary Section
The dictionary's interdisciplinary approach greatly enhances its effectiveness as a ìone-stopî resource. Students ...show more will no longer need to waste precious study time seeking out definitions in numerous specialized sources. Many definitions are accompanied by examples from the research literature, illustrating how the terms apply in particular contexts.

This dictionary is useful for any criminology or criminal justice course - with applications in sociology, public administration, political science, and the administration of justice.

Key terms cut across the following areas: criminal law, criminal justice, forensics, criminal investigations, criminology, criminological theory, corrections, probation and parole, courts and sentencing, rules of criminal procedure, constitutional law, policing and police-community relations, jails and prisons, white-collar crime, civil rights, tort law, victimization, juvenile law, capital punishment, electronic surveillance, fines and asset forfeiture, deadly force, search and seizure, the Prison Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996.

Also included are listings of leading criminological theorists, a synopsis of their major theoretical contributions and extracts from their written works. Many theorists are cross-referenced with other scholars studying similar phenomena.

The Court Cases Section
Conveniently alphabetized and indexed, the most recent and significant leading U.S. Supreme Court cases are abridged in summary format to highlight the major facts, holdings, and rationales.

Ralph MARTIN, District Attorney for Suffolk County] (Frivolous Lawsuits; Inmate Rights).
